The Miami Hurricanes are ranked 8th in the preseason AP Poll released today.

- No. 8 Miami Hurricanes have their best preseason AP ranking since being No. 6 to start the 2004 season.

The Miami Hurricanes are also No. 8 in the preseason coaches poll.

Lawd yeah... Terrance would not be able to walk around in public if that ish went viral!

CaneRock

This is welcome news...Diaz:

One of the great things to come out of camp is the development of Jhavonte Dean. He had two interceptions and really played well on Saturday night. That should do wonders for his confidence. We were down a few guys, so it was an opportunity for some guys that might be ‘twos’ to play with the ‘ones,’ and they stepped up and rose to the challenge. We’d just like to have it where you get that feeling that you bring 22 guys into the game and not have a dropoff. We may not be there yet.”

Although usual #2 corner Trajan Bandy was held out today, Diaz is seeing the progress he wants to see out of Jhavonte Dean and Dean worked with the one’s along with Michael Jackson after nabbing two picks in the scrimmage.


CaneRock

And it looks like the Illinois transfer (Odenigbo) is going to contribute.

Looks like all the guys that fans have written off are steppin' up!

Welcome back TD.

Need Epi, UMike and Ohio to start dropping some knowledge and we'll be ready to roll.

TonyCane

I love it. Perfect picture to represent the destruction that the Three Headed Monster is going to unleash on college football. First up, LSU. There should be some sorrow for the current football players. They know little of the crimes of their forebearers and Les Miles...crimes that they now have to answer for. Yes, that Peach Bowl brawl earned LSU a place on the List of Woe. In less than two weeks, discipline will be meted out. Those current players will know nothing but mediocrity and decline in their program from this point forward.

As touchdown throws fall into the hands of waiting Hurricane receivers like so many leaves falling from autumn trees, as the UM line blasts open holes like Ghidorah smashes apart buildings...LSU as a program will fall apart.

The three headed monster is coming. And it is famished.

thirstybuzzardcane

The new uniform is no bueno! They look like our old Nike one with the green on the sleeve. Adidas needs to step up their game.

58 Straight

TonyCane...the real reason that you were summoned to the Principals office is that I am going to run the Legends of the Fall 2018 next. I don't have time to track the results and I need your keen statistician skills to help out. Are you up for the J O B?

TonyCane

Absolutely, I'll certainly track the results.

2. To distribute tickets to other family, friends, etc. you may do the following:
Use the share button at the bottom of your phone when viewing the tickets.
Share the tickets from your Apple Wallet.
Screenshot your tickets and deliver to other patrons via text or email.

looks like Urban Liar will most likely get a 2 game suspension.

Just ask any 12 year old family member. They’ll do it for you in about two minutes.

BigWindyCane1

Great Canes programs of the past (such as Jimmy Johnson and Butch Davis eras) built depth and talent with recruiting and player development. CMR checks the player development box for sure. CMR has taken an interest in the development of the entire Canes scholarship roster, and the evidence is apparent from what I am reading about Fall camp.

Jhavonte Dean, Choc, Njoku, Willis, Patchan, Finley, Derrick Smith, Jahair Jones- these are players that may have gotten lost down on the depth chart last season, but this coaching staff and the strength and conditioning staff did not give up on them, and now these players have a real chance to contribute this season according to early reports out of Fall camp.

Player development is also a great way to sell recruits. If you come to Miami, you will be developed. Whereas, teams like Alabama seem to have just as many 4/5-star recruits who eventually transfer as to 4/5-star recruits who eventually start.

CMR is building this program the right way.

Go Canes!!

Good stuff Windy. And speaking of depth, here’s Ivin’s expected depth chart:

Good news for Coach L. SG transfer Anthony Mack’s hardship waiver was granted by the NCAA, and Mack can play this season

TonyCane

On a basketball note, what is the latest on Vernon Carey Jr?

BEERicane

58, how would you like to settle up for the FSU tix? U wouldn’t happen to be going and could tailgate would you?!

BigWindyCane

Not sure what’s going on with the Carey, Jr. recruitment situation for the Canes. I heard the Canes are in the mix, but I am not sure if he is leaning towards the Canes or some other “blue blood” basketball programs, like Michigan St., Kansas, Duke, Kentucky or North Carolina . It would be a big get for Coach L, but I am not confident enough to predict.

But I really like his game. Carey is a program-changing, one-and-done type player.

Are you going to other games before FSU? We could meet at a game or I could mail them to you or meet you in Miami?

58 Straight

I am not going to FSPoo.

BigWindyCane

I don’t know if Coach L has a Florida focus for recruiting like the football team. I think Coach L’s focus has been more on the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. With the exception of Huell, the Canes haven’t gotten commitments from the Nasir Littles, RJ Barrett’s, Anfernee Simmons, Scotty Barnes, etc., types.

I like Coach L, and I think he is a great coach - but his emphasis hasn’t been on recruiting FLORIDA. It seems to work for him. Coach L has been very successful, so I think he should continue to recruit to his strengths

Terrance Sullivan

I am not going to the FSPoo Game either! I guess going to the LSU, SSU, FIU, UNC, Duke, GT, Pitt, Games are enough and hopefully the Chik Fil A Peach Bowl or if we are lucky and great the Capital One Orange Bowl(Playoffs).

58 Straight

KYCane...what is the plan for transpo and tailgating this season? I have the GREEN parking passes.

Seems like a lot of folks will not be attending the FSU game this year. Is there s Sam Smith concert on that same day or something?

Go Canes!!

I won’t be at the FSU game....if the apocalypse occurs.

VA Cane

Nice ranking about right; we have a lot to live up to after last year, but the last 3 games were really poorly done by all. We do have a lot of talent...QB is still a question but we go with what we have. I think we are stronger than opponents in each game, but on the filed is what counts. We will need to run the ball, but those 3 guys will be good IF the OL blocks. Hopefully QB can get it to the WRs. On D we are good, just need to tackle strong rush passer and get the TO chain out!

Pray to the Football God that Urban is terminated...probably not but he deserves to. Good football x and o guy; piece of trash re others and morality....everywhere he goes the discipline never goes wityh him. Despise him as person.
Hope you all have great time in TX....and enjoy it on tv all.

Al left his home with a dollar in his pocket and a head full of dreams.
He said somehow, some way, it's gotta get better than this.
Bradli packed her bags, left a note for her momma, she was just seventeen.
There were tears in her eyes when she kissed her little lineman goodbye.

They held each other tight as they lost on through the seasons they were so excited.
We got just one shot of life, let's take it while we're still not in prevent.
Because life is so brief and time is a thief when you're unranked.
And like a fistful of pigskin laces, it can slip right through your hands.

Young hearts be free tonight.
Time is on your side.
Don't let them put you down, don't let 'em push you around
don't let 'em ever change your point of attack.
Paradise was closed so they headed for motor city in a blissful manner.

They took a two room apartment that was jumping ev'ry night of the week.
Happiness was found in each other's arms as expected, yeah
Al pierced his ears, drove a pickup like a lunatic, ooh!
Young hearts be free tonight.

Time is on your side.
Don't let them put you down, don't let 'em push you around
don't let 'em ever change your point of attack.
Young hearts be free tonight.
Time is on, on your side.

Al wrote a letter back home to Bradli's parents tryin' to explain.

He said we're both real sorry that it had to turn out this way.

But there ain't no point in playing when there's nobody watching so we just ran
away.

Badli gave birth to a fifty eight point blowout loss, yeah!
Young hearts be free tonight
time is on your side.
Young hearts be free tonight
time is on your side.
Young hearts be free tonight
time is on your side.
Young hearts gotta run free, be free, live free
Time is on, time is on your side
Time, time, time, time is on your side
is on your side, is on your side
Young hearts be free tonight

Thanks GC. I really invite anyone to try to go down to Coral Gables and look at the players. In comparison to four years ago, or even last year, They are noticeably bigger, stronger , leaner and more athletic looking. Even the same players across the board look very different now. CMR has created a culture of excellence, and it shows physically. Players have been transformed physically and mentally, and it is obvious.

Go Canes!!

Meyer gets three games.

It should have been 0 games because he didn’t know or fired if he did.

Disgraceful.

Go Canes!!

Horrible:

Mary Jo White: Urban Meyer was aware of 2015 domestic violence allegations, he was informed of them by Gene Smith; both Meyer & Smith monitored the investigation for months. Gene Smith didn’t contact Ohio State compliance about the Smith domestic violence allegations

VA Cane

Investigation had board members on it...really independent huh?
Smith is a liar, Urban is worse.
OSU is apathetic school....judging by their players and staff you do not have to be real smart to get in there...The FSU of the north.

BigWindyCane

Very good news for the defense:

This is one of the most solidified starting positions on the team, with Redwine and Jaquan Johnson leading the way.

That's huge! That's the only position I was worried about!

Old Skool

Really interesting opinion piece in the NYTimes

Here's a sampling:

New rules permit basketball players to hire N.C.A.A.-certified agents before declaring for the NBA draft. These agents will help players gauge their prospects; they will also be permitted to pay for certain expenses incurred during the recruitment process.

To which I would say ... Why not football players?

This has the potential to exacerbate a fundamental tension at the heart of the N.C.A.A. model: There is a huge gap between the number of players who make the pros and the number who believe that they will. According to a 2011 study, 76 percent of Division I basketball players believe that it is at least “somewhat likely” that they will eventually play professionally; more than half of Division II players and 21 percent of those in Division III think the same thing.

Where they go with that tension is very thought provoking.
